TRUE App Store AAA Titles

I'd like to compile a list that I can buy from of TRUE app store AAA titles.

This is NOT a 'best of' the app store list. But a list of games that are GREAT ports, or on par with the BEST titles that other handhelds offer (DS or PSP)

I'm begining to not trust the 4-5 star ratings that many games are given as theyre often only relative to whats currently available. I'd rather know what games are truly great by todays standards, regardless of platform.

Here's what I've been playing that I would consider excellent AAA titles.

GTA chinatown wars - (obvious)
Puzzle Quest
N.O.V.A. (Not sure on this yet as I haven't played enough of it.)
Need for Speed Shift
Hook Champ (Not sure on this either... Enough content?)

Jet Car Stunts is definitely a AAA Title. It is unique and offers excellent controls.

You mentioned GTA: Chinatown Wars, which is definitely a AAA Title.

I wouldn't say EA's sports games. They are great, but they can be a lot better. This includes Sims (not a sports game, ovbiously.)

I'm trying to think of more. From what I've heard from TouchGen's preview/interview and TA's preview/interview and a couple first impressions, Assassin's Creed II. It seems like it'll be a great port.
